Hi,
My organization is using SonarQube 4.5.4 and want to upgrade to the latest version. Can anyone guide me how to proceed with the upgrade and also what are the new features which are in 7.6 version as compared to 4.5.4?

Thank you.

Greetings Surmeet,

Under “Show All Versions” of https://www.sonarqube.org/downloads/ you can see the history of releases, including “Screenshots” (Product News) and Release Notes.

The Upgrade Guide explains the upgrade procedure (upgrade to all intermediate LTS versions, so 4.5.4 -> 5.6.7 -> 6.7.6 -> 7.6)

You’ll probably find the SonarQube platform of today very different than the one you are using. I would recommend standing up an instance of SonarQube v7.6 Community Edition and try out some scans. You might find the differences so huge that you just stand up a new platform.
